    Thought it was easy and really nothing. Took like two minutes and pretty painless. I get wanting to go under due to anxiety, but really no need to.

    They gave me the option of a Valium to take beforehand. I said yes and thank you. Hopefully it makes the actual procedure easy. It’s the recovery I’m worried about.

    It was such a strange experience for me... My balls just hanging out on a sheet of paper and having casual conversation with the doc while he cuts my sack.
    Didn't feel like anything. When they cauterized the vas it was a strange experience to see and smell nut smoke.

    Super painless though. Recovery wasn't even that bad for me. But I milked it so my wife could understand the gravity of the sacrifice

    So, uh, we canceled my appointment yesterday.

    We slipped up :facepalm: Positive test yesterday morning.

    So now I’ll wait until we get to 20 weeks or so and do it then. We’re happy but this is definitely it. If something happens with this pregnancy we wanted the option to try again if we decided to since we’re going all in on welcoming a third kid to the brood.

    This is why I had mine done within six weeks of our second one popping out (that and my insurance plan year ending). Since we hit the max-out-of pocket due to a C-section, I at least didn’t have to pay for anyone (in the moment) to cut into my scrotum.

    My doc liked listening to Cream and making small talk while operating, but he was not near liberal enough with the local anesthetic. I jumped at the first couple of scalpel cuts. The stitches were the biggest pain during recovery for me since they kept poking me in the leg, but I was able to walk gingerly and climb the bleachers at a basketball game the next day.

    Total cost appears like it will end up being $2170. Not bad and pretty close to the estimated $2300 they told me. Hopefully that includes all the claims and I don't see anything come in late.

    The wife and I were one-and-doners years ago - she also had a surgery that made anything else impossible - but I'm also in the middle of a separation and I sure as fuck don't plan on having any random kids in the future.

    Officially joined the club today. Currently typing this with ice on my balls(gauze).

    Initial local anesthesia was the worst but being numb down there while they were tugging shit around was weird. Took about 20 minutes.

    I had to go crank one out yesterday afternoon in a fertility clinic for my post op semen analysis. It was way more uncomfortable and awkward than I was already expecting.

    Got put in a well let masterbatorium with instructions on how to use the internet tv and google. Black love seat with a giant napkin thing to spread out on. It was awful.

    Mine sent me home with a cup that I’m allowed to fill at home and then bring back within an hour.

    “you can keep it body temperature by keeping it in a coat pocket”

    Totally not creepy. Joke’s on them, I’m going to fill it in the parking lot.

    my consult was Wednesday, procedure today.

    The chance for one slipping through after the procedure(and you’re proven sterile) is a lot less now. They fold one of the tubes on each side back toward itself before cauterizing so even if a swimmer snuck through years down the road, it wouldn’t even be pointed toward the right place.

    mine was no scalpel. I’d imagine that part is pretty standard now.

    Got mine done a couple years ago. Had a great conversation during the procedure with the Dr’s assistant who’s son apparently went to the middle school I taught at (not in any of my classes though). Very awkward how nonchalant she was talking about her son and his classes/teachers/friends while touching my penis.

    i milked the shit out of the recovery after hearing some grapefruit-sized horror stories from guys I coached with. My wife’s parents came in for the week to help wife with kids so she could wait on me. Laid in bed for 7 days watching like every 30 for 30 that’s ever been made. Days 1 and 2 were pretty uncomfortable, but it felt way better after that.

    Best advice I would give is to follow doctor recommendations no matter how good you feel. Also, jock straps and bags of frozen peas are the best.

    What's a procedure cost these days? Wish insurance looked at it as preventative care b/c I know they don't want another kid on my plan.

    Survived another month w/out getting popped with the horrific news of baby +2 is comin. Feel like I'm laying with fire every day

    Still waiting on the bill for mine. Was estimated to be between 700 and 1100, depending on how much insurance decided to cover.

    Am just under 2 weeks removed from the procedure. Waited a full week on returning to the gym and had minimal soreness the next day. I probably over-did it the first time, too. Have been multiple times since and feel pretty good during and after, even this point.

    That's not too bad.

    I just need my wife to get out of her waffling state. Earlier this week "I'm done with kids". Last night after drinking "Are you sure you don't want a 2nd kid". That's a hard no from me, dawg.
